A Heritage Project
Potternewton Mansion is home to the Gurdwara Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji; established in 2006 by members of the local Sikh community.
In 2012, the community embarked on a renovation programme to repair and maintain the mansion building. The programme of repairs that followed was instrumental in removing the building from the Heritage at Risk Register.A 200 year timeline is explored through 3 periods, each with a significant story to tell about the Mansion and its estate lands.
This website represents a lottery funded project exploring the 200 year history of Potternewton Mansion.
